My dividers came with the car and they work great.

Hello: Just wondering why you would want to change to 16 inch tires. Your odometer and gearing will all be incorrect for the power train. 18 inch tires give a better ride as well as better ground cleanance.

Thanks for response. Only reason is the cost of the 18" tires. Maybe price will go down before I need replacements. My assumption is that the larger tires are just a styling decision by the manufacturers that results in higher costs for the consumer, and even 15" would be adequate.

just ordered Weathertech for my recently-purchased used 2009 SE AWD since I had Weathertech for 6 years on SE Pathfinder with no leaks, no scratches and no damage to weatherstripping that I could see.
